Environmental issues are inherently complex and constantly changing. Core courses in the programme are designed to provide the students with interdisciplinary knowledge on questions and challenges related to sustainable development. 

We offer courses that introduce sustainable development as a political idea and an analytical concept. The courses  examine current and future challenges of sustainable resource use and management for assessing and analyzing environmental change. The topics of earth system and climate sciences, environmental policy and governance, sustainability transformation, sustainable resource management – including social, political, and biogeochemical aspects – are central themes in the programme. Students learn to critically evaluate common concepts and scientific approaches as well as assess and implement common theories and methods within social and natural science and humanities. The programme provides opportunities to choose specialization courses within the fields of environmental science and sustainable development during the third semester with possibilities to study abroad and carry out internship in Sweden or abroad. The final semester of the programme consists of an independent study (thesis project) where students deepen their knowledge and skills within a selected area of specialization.

The heading ´Curriculum` contains a list of courses included in the programme. The course syllabuses describe in more detail contents, teaching and working methods, and examination.
